The AMD Opteron processor can also be used for 32-bit computing
as well as in a 64-bit environment.
The Stellaris line of MCUs brings high-performance 32-bit computing
to cost-sensitive embedded microcontroller applications at a cost equivalent to legacy 8- and 16-bit devices.
The new low-power mobile AMD Athlon 64 processor models 2800+ and 2700+ further expand the award-winning AMD Athlon 64 processor family, offering a powerful 32-bit computing
experience today with a seamless transition to 64-bit applications.
The x86-64 architecture, which will compete with Intel's new 64-bit Itanium chips, integrates into the current 32-bit computing
and support environment to enable companies to transition to 64-bit environments without losing their investment in 32-bit hardware and software.
The AMD Opteron processor with Direct Connect Architecture provides the highest performance per watt in the industry among x86 platforms in the world of 64-bit and legacy 32-bit computing
, and the xw9300 Workstation can be configured with one or two of these processors in either single- or dual-core versions.
Many of our customers were bound within the limits of 32-bit computing
The AMD Opteron processor, with the "Hammer" core, is a 64-bit processor that builds upon the x86 instruction set and can also fully support 32-bit computing
AMD's relentless promotion of this ideal has resulted in the widespread adoption of beneficial industry standards such as x86-based, simultaneous 64- and 32-bit computing
, and HyperTransport(TM) technology.
It builds upon the x86 instruction set, and seamlessly integrates into the current 32-bit computing
and support environment.
Utilizing technology from both companies, customers can also expect substantial performance improvements relative to their 32-bit computing
systems used today.
However, Intel designed Itanium as a dedicated 64-bit device and is leaving progress in 32-bit computing
to next-generation versions of its Pentium processor.
